Why Liberty can cover
The Flames come into this matchup full of confidence. They’ve won six straight overall and sit just one game behind Bellarmine for first place in the conference. They’ve been tremendous against the spread this season as well. In addition to their strong ATS marks overall (12-6) and at home (6-1), the Flames are also 8-1 ATS when they have more than four days between games, which is the case on Monday after Liberty last played on Feb. 13.
Guard Darius McGhee (13.7 ppg) is Liberty’s leading scorer, but the Flames are best known for their work on the defensive end, giving up just 58.5 points per contest.
Why North Alabama can cover
The Lions come into this matchup struggling with five straight losses. But two of those came against conference-leading Bellarmine, and only two of those five losses were by more than 10 points. That could give backers confidence that the Lions will be able to keep this one at least competitive.
Forward Mervin James leads the team in scoring with 13.9 ppg and averages 6.6 rebounds. Guard Jamari Blackmon averages 10.3 ppg. North Alabama also has a chance to control the boards since the Lions rank 28th nationally at 40 rebounds per contest.
